Carnival Of Top Personal Finance Posts Test Run #2

by The Happy Rock on April 27, 2009

After last week’s poor performance of the voting widget, TopBlogPosts.net is running a second test carnival before Beta release begins. Bible Money Matters was the unofficial winner of the first test carnival with the post: Days Like This Make You Realize What Is Important: It Isn’t Your Possessions

For those that didn’t catch the TopBlogPosts.net is a unique spin on the blog carnival that is designed to:

  • Be a reader controlled filtering service for the fire-hose that can be a normal blog carnival. Instead of great links being lost within the hundreds of posts, only the best are highlighted.
  • Make it easier for readers to connect with the best content.
  • Draw more attention to the authors that are writing the best content.
  • Make carnival content easily and instantly sharable across all blogs.
  • Provide more traffic for the best articles.
  • Monetarily reward the best content by giving a portion of the website’s revenue to the winners. This a future goal that will take a little while to work out the specifics.

pf-badgeThe carnival will accept submissions through BlogCarnival.com and the host will select only the top few posts to be included in a poll that will be shareable between blogs. Readers will then select the best article of the week. The winner will be given a Blog Topper award badge(see picture) to display on their article page. The site is currently in Alpha release phase while we run a test or two PF carnival to work out any major kinks. It will quickly move into Beta release and settle into a nice rhythm.

Here is the Carnival of Top Personal Finance Posts homepage for those that are interested.

Here is the second test Carnival of Top Personal Finance Posts :

Voting widget had some issues last week, but hopefully the kinks are mostly worked out and voting goes smoothly.
If you have any questions or suggestions or problems, let me know.
